2000-08-11 Tim Austin w pts 12 Arthur Johnson, Paris Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Joe Cortez. Scorecards: 120-108, 120-108, 120-108. Making his fifth defence, Austin 117¾), although not being at his best, had too much for Johnson (117) who was too cautious and negative to land the title. The fight basically followed the same pattern throughout, Austin leading with the southpaw jab and occasionally dropping in some heavy shots, while Johnson, despite his pre-fight boasts, making up the numbers.
